The Wedding Date Reviews

    Mar 03, 2018

    What a charming, warm, sexy gem of a novel. I couldn?t put The Wedding Date down. I love a good romance and this delivered from the first page to the last. Alexa Monroe is a great heroine?smart, funny, and full of the anxieties women know intimately. And when she meets the handsome...

    SO GOOD, definitely one of my new favorite romances! - Interracial relationship (black female and white male protagonists) - Fake to real relationship trope (one of my faves!) - Explicit practice of safe sex - Alexa works for the mayor of Berkeley and she is trying to obtain fundin...

    3.5 stars. While it?s true that the best day to read this contemporary romance is on Valentine?s Day, as the cover loves to imply, I wasn?t sure about it back in February. Then I changed my mind. Sometimes you really do need to trust a book?s cover when it tells you that you...

    4 stars!!! The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory is charming, sweet, and downright adorable! I had trouble believing this was a debut novel- it was so well written and a pleasure to read! Alexa and Drew meet in an unconventional way. They?re stuck together in an elevator. Bei...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ?Alexa Monroe walked into the Fairmont hotel in San Francisco that Thursday night wearing her favorite red heels...? I loved so much about The Wedding Date! Like, oh my word, what a damn treat! ...

    2.5, it's not that terrible a 2-star. Alexa and Drew meet while stuck inside an elevator and they start talking. Drew is really handsome but his ex-girlfriend not only is to marry his best friend but also he was called to be the best man. To make things worse, he's dateless. As an i...

    Contemporary-A-Thon challenge #6: read a diverse contemporary -COMPLETE! This was mega cute. A little corny at times, but honestly what new adult romance isn?t a little corny at times? Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a fast and fun read set in the Bay Area! ...

    I LOVE this book!!!!!! I want to thank Roxane Gay, I never would have read this book if I hadn't read her review of this book. You should know that I will read anything Roxane Gay tells me to. The Wedding Date is a Hallmark movie in novel form and I mean that as a compliment. T...

    I?m so glad I got stuck in that elevator with you.? she said.?Me, too.? The Wedding Date is an adorable romance about two people who aren't quite sure how to navigate a "relationship" that was never part of their plans. With a cuter than cute meet-cute, you'd expect t...

    This is a super cute romance. When Alexa is stuck in an elevator with handsome stranger Drew, the spark is instant. He?s going to the wedding of an ex-girlfriend and former best friend, and he doesn?t have a date. After knowing each other for only a short time, he asks if she?d w...

    4.5 stars! You know how they always say never judge a book by its cover? Sometimes THEY?RE WRONG. Because this cover is cute AF and so was this book!!!! Such a refreshing read, I enjoyed it so much! The Wedding Date is about Alexa, who when visiting her sister in a hotel ...

    This was an adorable romance with my favorite Fake Dating trope! ? Couple meets stuck in a elevator ? Guy needs a date to his ex's wedding ? Cue adorable and awkward situations ? Interracial couple, Alexa is black and Drew is white ? Both characters have established car...

    Another great book to read near Valentine's Day! Steamy, romantic and def. swoonworthy! ...

    Very adorable and sexy romance! I loved that this got right into things and began with the wedding and then let us watch how things unfolded after the fake date. For the most part, this was compulsively readable but I felt this maybe dragged on a little too long in the middle. The m...

    LIVE AMAZON https://www.amazon.com/Wedding-Date-f... 4.5 stars The Wedding Date was exactly what I needed and even more.The writing was beautiful and the story refreshing.The Wedding Date was fast paced and lighthearted! I adored Alexa and Drew.Alexa is smart and funny.Dr...

    Sweet little romantic novel. Drew and Alexa both meet accidentally on an elevator and Drew asks Alexa to accompany him to a wedding. He wants her to pretend to be his girlfriend and the weekend turns out to be more than either expected. Throughout the story each of them fly to each ...

    Hate to say it, but this book disappointed me so, so much. It follows Alexa Monroe, a black woman who works as the mayor's chief of staff, who meets Drew Nichols, a white surgeon. They get stuck in an elevator together and after some flirtatious banter, Drew asks Alexa to accompany him...

    NOW AVAILABLE! This is not the type of book I generally seek out. I like romances, but I usually prefer either historical romances or paranormal ones - something not set in our world, present time. However, after reading Roxane Gay's review, I decided to request it from Netgalley. ...

    The Wedding Date is Jasmine Guillory's debut novel. It features one of my favorite romance tropes: pretend relationships. As the title suggests, the hero needs a date to a wedding, so a stranger he meets in a stalled elevator agrees to show up. Other factors lead to them faking a relat...

    [3.5] Not many books out there with interracial couples. Whilst this story was light, fuckin adorable and so much fun to read, I love that the author included aspects of race and white privilege in this book. It was done do well. I'd say pick this book up if you are in the mood fo...

    My rating makes me really sad because I had very high hopes for this novel. I was debating whether or not to make it a bit higher, but if I'm being honest, I did not like this as a whole. Basically, this book is about 30-something year old Alexa and Drew who meet on a stuck hotel...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ Apparently all of my friends read this because Roxanne Gay told them to, but since I am not a big Roxanne Gay fan I wasn?t even aware she was recommending it. What I was aware of was that the title gave the appearance i...

    This novel doesn't break ANY new romance ground, does it? I had expected something MUCH better from a Roxanne Gay recommendation. ...

    This was cute until they had sex at like 20 percent of the book and i hate that :") And i actually found myself not giving a fork about any of the characters and i didn't get into the story. Sorry i thought i would like you because i like everything that is chessy and unrealistic bu...

    After reading The Wedding Date, I created my "Favorite Reads of 2018" shelf on Goodreads and promptly added this book to the list so that should tell you how well things went. Over the years, Fake Dating & I have had a rocky relationship. Plots revolving around Fake Dating are a...

    Alexa Monroe found herself trapped at a hotel elevator with a handsome, charming Drew Nichols. The incident led to a wedding date, a pretend relationship which quickly escalated into something more. The Wedding Date charmed me from beginning to end. The best part about this book wa...

    3.5 stars Between this and To All The Boys I Loved Before, I am apparently all in for the 'fake relationship turns into real love' romance trope ...

    3.5/5 stars!! This was so cheesy y?all but adorable af too so it was exactly what I needed at this point ? I loved the fact that both the main characters POV was included but I do feel that the writing style could be improved and there?s also a lot of repetition, as i feel the ch...

    This is normally not my kind of jam, but I will read anything that Roxane Gay tells me to read. This was so corny and formulaic that, if it weren't written by a black woman, it would have already been adapted into a Kathryn Heigl movie by now. And yet, it was a surprisingly sexy, fun p...

    My rating makes me really sad because I had very high hopes for this novel. I was debating whether or not to make it a bit higher, but if I'm being honest, I did not like this as a whole. Basically, this book is about 30-something year old Alexa and Drew who meet on a stuck hotel...

    This is normally not my kind of jam, but I will read anything that Roxane Gay tells me to read. This was so corny and formulaic that, if it weren't written by a black woman, it would have already been adapted into a Kathryn Heigl movie by now. And yet, it was a surprisingly sexy, fun p...

    SO GOOD, definitely one of my new favorite romances! - Interracial relationship (black female and white male protagonists) - Fake to real relationship trope (one of my faves!) - Explicit practice of safe sex - Alexa works for the mayor of Berkeley and she is trying to obtain fundin...

    3.5 stars. While it?s true that the best day to read this contemporary romance is on Valentine?s Day, as the cover loves to imply, I wasn?t sure about it back in February. Then I changed my mind. Sometimes you really do need to trust a book?s cover when it tells you that you...

    2.5, it's not that terrible a 2-star. Alexa and Drew meet while stuck inside an elevator and they start talking. Drew is really handsome but his ex-girlfriend not only is to marry his best friend but also he was called to be the best man. To make things worse, he's dateless. As an i...

    Contemporary-A-Thon challenge #6: read a diverse contemporary -COMPLETE! This was mega cute. A little corny at times, but honestly what new adult romance isn?t a little corny at times? Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a fast and fun read set in the Bay Area! ...

    I LOVE this book!!!!!! I want to thank Roxane Gay, I never would have read this book if I hadn't read her review of this book. You should know that I will read anything Roxane Gay tells me to. The Wedding Date is a Hallmark movie in novel form and I mean that as a compliment. T...

    I?m so glad I got stuck in that elevator with you.? she said.?Me, too.? The Wedding Date is an adorable romance about two people who aren't quite sure how to navigate a "relationship" that was never part of their plans. With a cuter than cute meet-cute, you'd expect t...

    This is a super cute romance. When Alexa is stuck in an elevator with handsome stranger Drew, the spark is instant. He?s going to the wedding of an ex-girlfriend and former best friend, and he doesn?t have a date. After knowing each other for only a short time, he asks if she?d w...

    Another great book to read near Valentine's Day! Steamy, romantic and def. swoonworthy! ...

    Very adorable and sexy romance! I loved that this got right into things and began with the wedding and then let us watch how things unfolded after the fake date. For the most part, this was compulsively readable but I felt this maybe dragged on a little too long in the middle. The m...

    Sweet little romantic novel. Drew and Alexa both meet accidentally on an elevator and Drew asks Alexa to accompany him to a wedding. He wants her to pretend to be his girlfriend and the weekend turns out to be more than either expected. Throughout the story each of them fly to each ...

    Hate to say it, but this book disappointed me so, so much. It follows Alexa Monroe, a black woman who works as the mayor's chief of staff, who meets Drew Nichols, a white surgeon. They get stuck in an elevator together and after some flirtatious banter, Drew asks Alexa to accompany him...

    NOW AVAILABLE! This is not the type of book I generally seek out. I like romances, but I usually prefer either historical romances or paranormal ones - something not set in our world, present time. However, after reading Roxane Gay's review, I decided to request it from Netgalley. ...

    The Wedding Date is Jasmine Guillory's debut novel. It features one of my favorite romance tropes: pretend relationships. As the title suggests, the hero needs a date to a wedding, so a stranger he meets in a stalled elevator agrees to show up. Other factors lead to them faking a relat...

    [3.5] Not many books out there with interracial couples. Whilst this story was light, fuckin adorable and so much fun to read, I love that the author included aspects of race and white privilege in this book. It was done do well. I'd say pick this book up if you are in the mood fo...

    My rating makes me really sad because I had very high hopes for this novel. I was debating whether or not to make it a bit higher, but if I'm being honest, I did not like this as a whole. Basically, this book is about 30-something year old Alexa and Drew who meet on a stuck hotel...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ Apparently all of my friends read this because Roxanne Gay told them to, but since I am not a big Roxanne Gay fan I wasn?t even aware she was recommending it. What I was aware of was that the title gave the appearance i...

    This novel doesn't break ANY new romance ground, does it? I had expected something MUCH better from a Roxanne Gay recommendation. ...

    This was cute until they had sex at like 20 percent of the book and i hate that :") And i actually found myself not giving a fork about any of the characters and i didn't get into the story. Sorry i thought i would like you because i like everything that is chessy and unrealistic bu...

    After reading The Wedding Date, I created my "Favorite Reads of 2018" shelf on Goodreads and promptly added this book to the list so that should tell you how well things went. Over the years, Fake Dating & I have had a rocky relationship. Plots revolving around Fake Dating are a...

    Alexa Monroe found herself trapped at a hotel elevator with a handsome, charming Drew Nichols. The incident led to a wedding date, a pretend relationship which quickly escalated into something more. The Wedding Date charmed me from beginning to end. The best part about this book wa...

    Hate to say it, but this book disappointed me so, so much. It follows Alexa Monroe, a black woman who works as the mayor's chief of staff, who meets Drew Nichols, a white surgeon. They get stuck in an elevator together and after some flirtatious banter, Drew asks Alexa to accompany him...

    NOW AVAILABLE! This is not the type of book I generally seek out. I like romances, but I usually prefer either historical romances or paranormal ones - something not set in our world, present time. However, after reading Roxane Gay's review, I decided to request it from Netgalley. ...

    [3.5] Not many books out there with interracial couples. Whilst this story was light, fuckin adorable and so much fun to read, I love that the author included aspects of race and white privilege in this book. It was done do well. I'd say pick this book up if you are in the mood fo...

    My rating makes me really sad because I had very high hopes for this novel. I was debating whether or not to make it a bit higher, but if I'm being honest, I did not like this as a whole. Basically, this book is about 30-something year old Alexa and Drew who meet on a stuck hotel...

    This novel doesn't break ANY new romance ground, does it? I had expected something MUCH better from a Roxanne Gay recommendation. ...

    This was cute until they had sex at like 20 percent of the book and i hate that :") And i actually found myself not giving a fork about any of the characters and i didn't get into the story. Sorry i thought i would like you because i like everything that is chessy and unrealistic bu...

    After reading The Wedding Date, I created my "Favorite Reads of 2018" shelf on Goodreads and promptly added this book to the list so that should tell you how well things went. Over the years, Fake Dating & I have had a rocky relationship. Plots revolving around Fake Dating are a...
